Conservatively Speaking

State Senator Mary Lazich (R-New Berlin) represents parts of four counties: Milwaukee, Waukesha, Racine, and Walworth. Her Senate District 28 includes New Berlin, Franklin, Greendale, Hales Corners, Muskego, Waterford, Big Bend, the town of Vernon and parts of Greenfield, East Troy, and Mukwonago. Senator Lazich has been in the Legislature for more than a decade. She considers herself a tireless crusader for lower taxes, reduced spending and smaller government.

UPDATE: Check your electric bill for another new hidden tax

State budget, Taxes


Earlier this month, I wrote about a new tax on electric bills that could go unnoticed by consumers.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has more, including this line:

The utility bill surcharge for district attorneys is required by law to end on June 30, 2011.” 

History is new taxes are extended. Like so many new taxes, they do not sunset. They are extended and in some cases used for other purposes.
